Are you sure Chile will be seeded as they have only just got back into the World Group :confused: I certainly hope so though!

Can you explain how Chile will be seeded. They are ranked around 20th i think in the DC rankings.

So Chile would be difficult first round for the any team.

I just don't want to see USA - Austria again. :p We already had it this year. But the Austrian commentator said that it would be a home match for Austria then. :rolleyes:

The worst that could happen is Australia in an away game, I think. :unsure:

Really excited about who we get ... :devil:

Chile and Croatia will not be seeded, it goes on past performances in the Davis Cup.

Seeding also takes in calculation the ranking of players. Chile and Croatia have players ranked higher than Belarus for example.

Why for example is Sweden unseeded?

First of all this country is nearly the most successful in the last 10 years.
Then they have 5 players in Top 60. And with Björkman also a great double.

Why is Netherlands seeded? Why not Chile??? I think it is very stupid!!!

Edit: And Sweden is higher then Netherlands in rankings!!! The ITF sucks!

That was the seeding for 2004, which was made this time last year!
At that time, Netherlands had 2 players in the top 20, and Sweden (IIRC) had only Bjorkman in the top 50.

Ajmo hrvatska!! I'm really interested to see what surface ths is going to be on becuase the americans usually try to find one that suites roddick's serve, but now they are facing ljubicic and ancic and clay won't work cause ljubicic like clay and roddick and fish hate it.

Anyways, AJMO HRVATSKA!!!!

Champion number 1

So are Italy in Italy or Luxembourg.

Either way we should do well. Luxembourg have Gilles Muller but if Volandri and Starace are in form at the time we have every chance, even on hard court. Our doubles team may need to play well though.

If we win we face Morocco on clay and that would be a great match. Volandri and Starace against Arazi and El Aynaoui (if all fit) would be a great match up.

Kristen
11-09-2004, 10:43 PM
I would love to see Jurgen to a backflip on how he did against Great Britain :yeah:
It would be really nice if everyone could take advantage of Mark Philippoussis (if they let him play!?) again :lol: Oops that was a bit mean ^_^
